This presentation will introduce the concept of column stores and contrast them with traditional row stores. It will then introduce a set of open source column store databases. The available features of each of the databases will be compared and contrasted. Finally the performance of loading a star schema and executing some mildly complex queries will be compared for each database, and the results will be compared with XtraDB, a row store.
The following open source products will be demonstrated and compared:
Infobright Community Edition (A MySQL column store)
XtraDB (A MySQL row store)
